Snack Food & Wholesale Bakery was recently able to talk to Andy Khiani, founder, Steve & Andy’s, about the company’s partnership with Palm Done Right, and the benefits of palm oil in baking.
Liz Parker: Can you provide a basic intro to the brand?
Andy Khiani: Steve & Andy’s believes in making the best cookies with the highest quality ingredients. We commit to using organic ingredients in our recipes to give you an amazing, organic cookie unlike anything you’ve ever had before.
Founders Steve Marino and Arjan (Andy) Khiani are serious about the organic and gluten-free lifestyle. The two met over twenty years ago while individually excelling in their creative careers of beauty and fashion. As each other’s confidant, they soon discovered a mutual passion for food and cooking, often co-creating meals for friends and family. Steve brought all of his Italian-Canadian baking prowess and Andy, a world of spices and flavors from his birth country of India. In February 2012, Steve and Andy launched Steve & Andy’s Organics. What began with one product line—candied organic orange and lemon peels—has grown into preserves, cookies, flour and more; all organic, all gluten free, some even vegan. Every day Steve and Andy relish the opportunity to create more clean foods for customers looking to live a more sustainable life.
